Absolutely amazing. We have 4 month old baby at the time and they went above and beyond to cater. Also nadia was very helpful with everything.

2/10 Poor

Hugely disappointing! Welcome was average and No upgrade as suggested having vip access , which would have been good seeing as the Room was well below average and advertised with a garden view … the view was onto the noisy tennis courts of kids and on the loading bay back of house where old mattresses get chucked out and bins picked up! We then went to breakfast and grabbed some food before heading out - plastic chunk ) (from what we can assume came from packaging ) in the pancakes! We were subtle and let the staff know thinking they’d deal with it however they just said ok, help yourself to something else. The manager followed up later on but it was a slow and poor reaction time. We left something in our room on check out - We could see it in our ‘apple find my..’ - contacted them same day with the screen shot .. and a phone call.. limited response, and still not resolved! Been traveling the world and not had service quite as bad as this!! Do not recommend this place. Sad!

8/10 Very good

5 mins walk to Marina
Great location 5 minutes walk from the Marina. Really nice hotel but no table service around the pool you have to go to the bar to order and then go back to your seat to wait for delivery and at this point your prompted to leave a tip. Get to pool early or no beds will be available. This is really annoying and down to selfish guest leaving towels on multiple beds so they’re in prime location when the sun moves. No hot food provided from Room Service after 11pm this isn’t explained which was frustrating. Rooms a little dated but very clean and comfortable with huge bed and big screen tv. Only 1 chef at breakfast so takes a little while if you want an omelette. The hotel offer complimentary bikes which is a really nice touch. Lobby staff are constantly busy and feels awkward when your left to stand and wait.
